Where to buy fresh starter?
Just wondering if anyone knows where I can buy starter for bread in Toronto. I've looked into recipes but am not into waking up every 4 hours to feed it.
I looked around a bit, but decided it wasn't worth it. You don't need to feed it every 4 hours. Twice a day is the most you should need and most of the time, one a day suffices. I started with rye flour and tap water, but then switched to unbleached white flour once it was going.
One other time, after my son had shared a Chimay beer with a friend, I rinsed the yeast from the bottom of the bottle to get a great starter going in only a days!
Folks, please keep this thread focused on where to buy starter in Toronto. If anyone has recipes to share, please post them on the Home Cooking board.
Have you tried going to a bakery and asking if they'll sell you some starter. If they say no, ask them where you could find some.
I'm trying to grow my own.
